Latin American Heritage and Science Come Together at IFT
Innova incorporates real family recipes into authentic product development
Lombard, IL (June 25, 2013) – As the IFT Annual Meeting + Food Expo comes to Chicago on July 14th, the meat flavor experts at Innova are showcasing a new line of authentic Puerto Rican flavors that will be featured in home-style family recipes. To ensure a genuine experience for companies looking for the next unique flavor idea, line extension or new product, Innova didn’t develop its latest products purely in a lab — they turned to the palates and memories right under their own roof.
“One of our team members, Carlos Rivera, comes from Puerto Rico and has such a strong connection to the flavors he grew up with,” Marketing Manager Daniela Garza explains. He still enjoys these recipes with his family, made from scratch.
Carlos, shared the ingredients and cooking techniques of his heritage down to the last detail. Cindy Clery, one of Innova’s applications scientists incorporated these recipes into the product development process. A round of tastings followed to confirm flavor authenticity
